Absolutely NOT impressed! We stopped in the Limketkai branch in CDO for lunch yesterday. A simple lunch of fish and chips for 2 was horrendous! The batter had no seasoning or flavor. The fish was undercooked and limp. Same with alleged “chips”. These are supposed...to be sweet potatoes (and I was unaware of that). These were dredged in the same flavorless batter as the fish. Just awful! I asked my server if she could put the fish back in the fryer and was told “NO”! Really??? This restaurant failed us 99% (not 100% because the beer was cold). If I could rate negative stars....I would! Please train your staff to accommodate the customer! This was our first.....and last visit to Redtail!More

My Northern Mindanao escapade wouldn't be completed without our Redtail dine in experience. The ambiance is just fine, but the food was mouth watering. I definitely recommend it to anyone. It's a great bang for the buck!

How disappointed to be told no crab.... its Saturday night, how do you not have crabs......really poor. Service and decor is good . Beer not cold enough to drink out of bottle, needed glass and ice. Food was served quickly. Sinuglaw was great. Seafood chowder...in bread bowl was below par and crispy calamari was certainly crispy , but rubbery and no taste. Overall this is not no 3 best resturant in CDO by my experience....More

Every time I go home I always asked mom to eat at redtail. I love the crabs and shrimp for a very reasonable price

From the time I first tasted it when they opened their first store until recently when they tranferred to a new and more spacious location,redtail will always be our all time favorite.even just during ordinary days,we will order and take it home or if we...want to eat with friends and families and enjoy the nice ambience of the place.one should not leave CDO without trying out redtail shrimps.nothing makes catching up with friends more fun than by eating barehands and enjoying shrimp-licious redtail 🍤More

Love the food although it’s a little bit pricey. The ambience is ok, and the two branches that I visited (near XU and Mallberry Suites) are very accessible. The staff are very accommodating. Serving of food is on time.

The first time I've been here, I didn't care I was eating alone because the seafood tastes great. The fisherman's catch in Redtail style sauce is so delicious it made me promise myself that whenever I'm in town, I wouldn't miss to eat here. So...the next time I was with colleagues, we ordered the same plus the crispy shrimp and grilled liempo, which were another hit! The price is worth the taste. And the boat theme of the place is awesome! For me it doesn't matter if they don't have an extensive menu, because what they offer are far more delicious than the other restaurants with the same price range. I will definitely be coming back for more!More

The serving is just right for the price but the flavors are awesome! It’s fun to eat with friends or fam.
